3-D Art, Ceramics

3D art studio update

3D students are glazing ceramic tiles for a collaborative wall art piece/s for the da Vinci auction on 4/17. The 3rd period class decided on a steam punk/mechanical tile theme, and the 4th period class chose a “Portland” tile theme.

They are also glazing their “Mini Me” sculptures; these will soon be on display in the art gallery for the This is Me exhibit (opens next week).

Finally, some students have started the Exquisite Corpse, a drawing game invented in 1925 by surrealists in which players draw in turn on a sheet of paper, fold it to conceal part of the drawing, and then pass it to the next player for a further contribution. Surrealism principal founder André Breton reported that it started in fun, but became playful and eventually enriching. After playing the drawing game, students are working in collaborative teams to transform their drawing into sculptures using mediums such as plaster, clay, wire, or paper maiche.
